Engaging students at a young age builds confidence, grows interest, and puts them on course for strong accomplishments in middle school, high school, and beyond.
Through PLTW Launch, our program for kindergarten through fifth grade, students become problem solvers. They use structured approaches like the engineering design process and employ critical thinking. They apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, learning that it's okay to take risks and make mistakes. As teachers and students learn and discover together, education becomes far more engaging. We designed PLTW Launch to offer maximum flexibility and work in a variety of settings and scenarios, which means there is an implementation model that will work for your school or organization.
